Hi I'm a complete amateur when it comes to guitars
so thats why I'm posting here

so here is my scenario
currently I'm looking for a new guitar
for starters i don't even own one
so thats a problem
for about 1 and a half years I've been jumping from one guitar to the next
(I've been borrowing my friends one usual the old dusty ones that
people tend to forget about)

so for about a few months I've been trying to improve my skill level enough to
play songs for my local church (currently can only play like 8 of them)

just wondering what would be the most idea guitar type to get
I'm thinking on the idea of an electric acoustic

but i don't know what i am supposed to look for or at when buying a guitar
and what are the certain draw backs
i know there is like a hundred threads that can help me with this
like pros and cons of
squared or rounded
or cutaway or not
or type of material

and there is this thing about tonal stuff which i don't understand that well

a few recommendation of what sorta guitar would be awesome

If you cut down on these costs students won't learn so well, effecting the "quality"...
What is your budget?

basically the idea is to get the best you can afford

You should see if the guitar stay in tune well, the neck is cmfortable to hold, build like a tank, and also plays well
Give us a budget, and your personal tastes in music (what you will be playing most of the time)
